As the sun sets in the Brixental, a burning spectacle lights up the hills for all to see! More than 40,000 torches create impressive pictures on the mountainsides of the Brixental, such as a bull and cow, the arms of the Brixental Young Farmers.
Every year the „Bergleuchten“ charms both locals and guests, as the associations of Kirchberg, Brixen im Thale and Westendorf display their symbols, arms and initials on the freshly mown, natural canvas of the fields.
Around 9.30pm the works of art are lit and the valley is transformed into a starry backdrop. The many fire pictures are best viewed in a journey along the valley, from Westendorf, through Brixen to Kirchberg.
The Gaisberglift is open from 5.00 pm - 11.00 pm (barbecue and live-music in the Gaisbergstüberl).
